Car covers

What kind do you use and where do you keep your car? The one on bavauto looks super nice and has a lifetime warranty but it'll run me well over $200 after shipping and brokerage. Wal-mart in the states has one for $32 that people on the website seem to be happy with. Even if I was to drive to Buffalo strictly for the car cover the savings make it worth it. They have different warranties and accessories but I really just want a quality product and I don't mind spending the money for something that will last forever. The car will be outside in the driveway in the summer and in the garage for the winter. The car cover will be on whenever I'm not driving...all year round.

I need one to. I hate detailing the car then having it rain the next day. The people with dark coloured cars know what I mean

Click "car care and detail", then "car covers", enter car info, it's the Bavarian Autosport Ultimate Car Cover

E36 is approx. 175 in. according to msn.ca so I'd go with a 200" if I were you.

get the original BMW ones. They are form factor for your cars. I think I picked up my E39 one from ebay for abour $180. (E39 one also fits on E34, I tried ) They're made by Noah, which is also sold by BavAuto. Breathable and doesn't scratch.

I ended up ordering the Bavauto one. The lifetime warranty and accessories sold me. I'll let you guys know how it is when it comes in. Thanks for all the input.
